Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Rich and deep, with aromas of dark chocolate, dark berries, bitter cherries, almonds and marzipan.

    • Palate

      Big, rich and concentrated. Raisins, fruit crumble, bitter chocolate and coffee mingle with candied orange peel and spicy oak.

    • Finish

      Very long lasting, with the rich fruit and spice vying for attention.

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    • Nose

      Rich and deep, with baked oranges, fruit compote, raspberry, dried mixed peel, oxidised red wine, thick-cut marmalade, marinated cherries, black tea and vanilla and wood tannins from the oak maturation.

    • Palate

      Medium-bodied but very characterful, with the aromas from the nose surprisingly intense and long-lasting on the palate. The orange peel / marmalade, tea and oak flavours seem most prominent but with plenty of other fruit and herby spices behind.

    • Finish

      Long and persistent, slightly drying. Marmalade and bitter orange liqueur. Very moreish.

    • Comment

      Easily the most interesting and complex red vermouth we've tried. Unmistakably Italian, you can tell this is the real thing.

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford

    • Nose

      An initial whiff of peat smoke, freshly cut tree bark, clove and honey is followed by berry fruit and vanilla.

    • Palate

      The intense, sweet and sour palate is complex with fruity, red berry notes and bitter orange.

    • Finish

      The finish is tangy and at the same time fresh and cleansing. The dying flavour is zesty orange and stewed dates.

    Lovely smooth vermouth, perfect on its own or as part of a Manhattan!

    Excellent vermouth, you really do get what you pay for and this is definitely up there as one of the best that i've tried. Well worth the price, excellent in a Negroni or Americano!
